Just the right size
Southern Californiaâs Dulcinea Farms has taken all the drawbacks out of watermelonâblack seeds, thick rind, and sheer bulk. At 4 to 6 pounds, its new Dulcinea PureHeart Seedless Watermelonâa miniature hybrid achieved conventionally, not modified geneticallyâis easy to carry, store, and cut. And itâs sweet and red down to the very thin rind. Available in supermarkets this summer (year-round, in fact), the mini melon is a $5 treat for a family of four, two hearty eaters, or one watermelon hound.
